EVERCLEAR
8 p.m. Magic Springs' Timberwood Amphitheater. $50-$60.

It's been the summer of bubble-grunge here in Arkansas, what with Bush and Daughtry headlining at Riverfest; Live, Sponge, Filter and Everclear at the Arkansas Music Pavilion, and Collective Soul at Magic Springs' Timberwood Amphitheater. OK, perhaps that's a bit of a stretch. Whatever.

Anyways, that sort-of trend continues at Timberwood Amphitheater this weekend with '90s sort-of-stars Everclear. The band is basically one of those Mark E. Smith/The Fall kind of deals where as long as Art Alexakis is singing and playing guitar, it's Everclear no matter who's backing him up.

But you know, that's just fine, because it was always mostly his band anyway — mostly his songs, mostly his glossy pop hooks, mostly his genuinely affecting dad issues (if "Father of Mine" doesn't bum you out, you have no soul). Anyways, if you know Everclear and want to hear the hits you know and love — "Santa Monica," "Everything to Everyone," "I Will Buy You a New Life" — you can do that this weekend and ride some rollercoasters too.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
